Energy from waste plants in Devon
In Devon, the majority of waste that isn’t reduced, reused, recycled or composted is sent to one of two energy recovery facilities either in Exeter or Plymouth. These plants combust residual (black bin) waste at extremely high temperatures in a controlled environment to produce energy which transformed into power and steam.

Whilst these plants are a much better option than simply landfilling our waste, it is still important that we reduce, reuse and recycle and compost as much as possible.
